/palestine conflict. it includes nearly the whole of the united nations, the most respected legal bodies in the world such as the international court of justice and the most respected human rights organizations such as amnesty international and human rights watch. this consensus calls for a two-state settlement on the june 1967 border, that is a full israeli withdrawal from the whole of the west bank, gads saw and east jerusalem with minor and mutual land swaps and address the refugee question based on the right of return and compensation. the consensus is grounded in basic and uncontroversial principles of international law and human rights. the framework of international law and human rights also forms the bedrock of american liberalism to which jews have disproportionately contributed. it is consequently within reach, it's now within reach to win over american jews on this political solution or at least the shame them into supporting such a solution. but it is inconceivable that american jews can be won over to any solution that entails the coercive dissolution of israel as a state. the current co

the archivist it ended special collections and archives and faculty members of the school. there's no national death penalty archive for documenting the fascinating history of capital punishment in the united states, so we set forth to establish the first. and what we do is we reach out to key organizations, significant individuals who are working either to abolish capital punishment or are proponents of capital punishment. and these individuals and organizations for the ideas that spring the debate that goes on, both in the legal arena and political agreement over the the death penalty. what i want to show you from the national death penalty archive today is a collection from a gentleman whose name is -- is recognized as the foremost historian of the death penalty in the united states. he began doing research in the death penalty in the late 1960s while he was a traveling salesman. became so passing with crime and capital punishment. and at that time he was a proponent of the death penalty. but he became so fascinated with the topic of the death penalty that he quit his job as a traveling sal
